Not anymore, unless they desperately need to be on the move. Or if the damage is, for some reason, horribly, horribly uneven.
To an extent, but they'd be a pretty crappy druid : / All you really have to mimic us are Renew and CoH, and maybe HW: Sanct.

Priests...Prayer of Healing now... renew was wotlk.
On topic: I find resto druid EXTREMLY boring and easy. I enjoy my shaman/priest a whole lot more. Can't say for pally.. she is still 80.
This is my feeling towards my druid. I used to love my druid. Being able to heal, tank, and DPS (reasonably well) with 2 specs was a huge draw for an altaholic like myself. Then I started healing. I too felt that I was doing mandatory stuff, instead of reacting to the situation. I'd prefer to react to the situation than just maintain rolling heals even when not needed, just so I don't lose what has been gained. The mastery feels clunky.
Now, I'm not saying anything bad about druid healing. When I tank, I love druid healers. Love the constant stream of green. Druids and shamans are my favorite classes to be healed by.
But I just can't get into the swing of druid healing.
In order of most stimulating/exciting to total bore:
1)Discipline Priest- Throwing bubbles out and spamming PoH can be boring but the Smite healing is refreshing. especially in five mans, i love creeping up to the dps barely managing 8-9k whilst keeping everyone alive before my mana pool sinks below 100k
2)Resto Druid- Versatility is very fun, have the tools to be a decent tank healer while always being able to keep the group alive. plus you can be a giant piece of broccoli, er, i mean a tree.
3)Holy Priest- i love the spell effects of sanctuary, and i love healing the raid. but i've found mana to be quite pesky at times with AoE healing as a holy priest. and as powerful as divine hymn is, in 5mans it makes content too boring imo. guardian spirit on tank, hymn, back to spamming heals. but that could just be my take on it.
4) Resto shaman is just a little boring to me. Rolling riptides, refresh earthshield, healing rain, chain heal,chain heal, lightning bolt x 9000 and full mana again. plus i <3 elemental too much these days to go heal.
5) Holy Pally is extremely awesome at healing but to me, absolutely boring.
And my critiques are not to bash anyone's favorite spec, just my opinion on playing them. I know certain specs are just better at raid healing and heroic mode ds but I'm a casual raider (just recently got Destroyers End). I like my priest and you like your pally. Apples to oranges ya know ? just play what you like :P
You're probably best off watching some videos from the healers perspective. Or try to borrow a trusted friend's account to try it out. There's no way forum posters are going to know what you will or will not like.
I hit the fun cap for the day already. sorry
